‘Need to be focused’

Sharjah: Pakistan captain Misbah-ul Haq on Tuesday urged his team to put up a strong challenge against Ashes-winning Australia when they play them in their next Test series in the United Arab Emirates in October.

Pakistan achieved their fastest run chase of 302 to beat Sri Lanka in the third and final Test in Sharjah on Monday, levelling the series 1-1.

“Australia are a very professional team and you need to be focused against them. You have to put in a lot of hard work because they come out with lots of plans. I think it will be a big challenge for us to play against Australia,” said Misbah.

“We have a young team and have been doing well.”
